The Commission on the Future of Surgery

Marianne Knight

The Commission on the Future of Surgery was set up in October 2017 by the Royal College of Surgeons. It is an independent group of 14 experts, who were tasked with identifying likely advances in medicine and technology in the next twenty years, and their implications for patients, the surgical workforce and healthcare system.

Commissioners sought and collected evidence, analysed the evidence received, and recommended actions to enable innovation and improve patient outcomes.
